Our goals for 2020 are ambitious, and we’re not wasting any time. We will take back the Presidency from Donald Trump, ensure the reelection of our local elected officials in Illinois, and support Democrats running for office in the districts of our MAP partners across the Midwest.
We’ve been working for three years to prepare for 2020, and we’re ready. We have the relationships and infrastructure to put our volunteers in the best position to make a real difference in critical races that we need to win.
Because we’ve been organizing Evanstonians to help Democrats win for over 50 years, we know that the best way to win elections is to talk to voters. Our calls have made the difference in tight elections, which is why we’ve started calling into important districts now. As the year goes on, we will add more phonebanks and canvasses, so check our calendar and Facebook page regularly to see what we have planned.
If you want your volunteer hours to matter, join us this year. There’s too much at stake not to get involved, and your time and effort will make a difference.
Message from President Jordan
It’s the end of the year, which means two things: it’s time to renew/join the DPOE, and time to start our work to defeat Trump.
We know that the Republicans and their dark money and special interest groups will out-spend us. So we need you this year more than ever. We must work together to defeat Trump, regain the Senate and hold the House. There is less than a year to make this happen. Make sure you can look back and feel that you put it all on the table. We can’t wake up November 4th wishing we did more. This is it. We must bring the power back to the people.
Speaking of defeating Trump, we are excited to announce our Democratic Party of Evanston’s 2020 Endorsement Session on February 9th at 1330 Ridge Avenue 60201. This endorsement session covers the President of the United States, Illinois Supreme Court, Cook County States Attorney and Cook County Clerk. We are encouraging members to participate in our trial run of ranked choice vote for the presidential endorsement. Only the first rank on the presidential ballot will be counted towards our official endorsement tally. The additional rankings will be used as data for our presentation to adopt ranked choice voting for 2021. Membership is required to participate in our endorsement session.
